@lovesclimbing how soon do you need to go in and have the ultrasound to see? Or can you request more than one? This baby was head down at my last appointment but I feel like she may have flipped again - it seems like they can change positions at the drop of a hat!This is random and has nothing to do with babies: I made some b*tchin beer cheese soup on Sunday night and brought the leftovers for lunch today. I am a happy camper.
@lovesclimbing other than encourage you to keep doing the inversions, would they do anything if baby turns out to have turned between now and your next appointment? If not, then I don't see why they'd want you back in unless they were going to try to do a version. If you get a version, provided it doesn't send you into labor, will you still be able to do your OOH birth?
@lovesclimbing did you check the spinning babies website or just doing the inversion at the suggestion of the midwives? Because you shouldn't get dizzy, and also not spend more than 30s-45s head down (https://spinningbabies.com/learn-more/techniques/the-fantastic-four/forward-leaning-inversion/). Here is the link from the spinning babies website about all techniques for turning breach babies, I had it bookmarked when DS2 was breech at first: https://spinningbabies.com/learn-more/baby-positions/breech/flip-a-breech/ They say the breech tilt is more effective than the inversions, but only if you know for sure that the baby is breech.

@lovesclimbing I’m not sure if you were asking this, but I couldn’t tell that mine flipped. I had tons of discomfort when baby B was transverse or breech, but now they are getting big and it’s hard for me to tell. Apparently they’ve both been head down now for over a week. I don’t have more pressure down low than I ever did, but baby A has always been super low.My doc also told me that heat and ice are safe. She recommended a cold pack at the top of my uterus and gentle warming where you want the head to go. Babe doesn’t like the cold and will turn away from it.You might also try moxabustion/accupuncture. There are points that encourage movement and can help a breech baby turn. You have to wait until you are term though because the same points can also cause preterm labor.
